Managers Sue Panera Bread Company for Fraud

Panera Bread Company is the defendant in a class action lawsuit that alleges the company committed fraud on store managers. According to the lawsuit, Panera entered into agreements with managers that would pay them a salary for five years, after which they would receive buyouts based upon the profitability of each store. In 2011, Panera began placing a cap on the buyouts that managers could receive. The lawsuit alleges that the caps were a violation of the prior agreements entered into. The suit claims that Panera only began using the cap because managers were outperforming expectations. The lawsuit seeks damages and injunctive relief.
